Chiang Saen is a city littered with ancient ruins, just south of the Golden Triangle.
I am a horrible person because I don't remember the names of these temples.
But here's a chedi. I remember that it's from the fifteenth century.
...in a residential neighborhood.
My guide, Sun, showed off his mango-slaying skills
And... there was a time in my life when I posed like the girl in the Absinthe Robette poster whenever someone brandished a camera. Don't judge me.
(I'm impressed with Sun's energy, as well as his mango-slaying. By this time we had visited...everything I blogged about this week.)
And this is at Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Saen. This one was built between the 12th and 14th centuries.
